Whirls and twirls: the circus comes to Revelstoke

Fireflight combines graceful aerials, choreography, acrobatics, flight, masks, and contemporary circus, to weave together a theatrical story about the power of engagement. It’s a magical adventure of getting involved and taking actions to protect what one holds dear. (Liam Harrap/Revelstoke Review)
